This fine walk follows the clifftops, stacks and bays of the coastline between An Gearrannan and Bragar. Although linear the walk is served by buses and could be shortened by heading inland to reach the main road at a number of points.


Infrequently waymarked but some navigation required. Much of the route is pathless; some rough going and boggy ground.

Public Transport

Bus to An Gearrannan blackhouse village at start; bus from Bragar at end.


Na Gearrrannan (Garenin) Blackhouse village car park. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
